John Whipple

Along with my wife, Lynn, we have been doing top-tier art festivals, gallery and museum shows since the mid-90s. I started my career as an art director and illustrator and then shifted to film and television when Universal Studios and Nickelodeon opened in Orlando. I used the experience of painting large scenic backdrops to become a muralist, doing large projects for the Orlando Science Center, Universal's™ Islands of Adventure, as well as working with many interior designers.

In 1996 while doing the Piedmont show in Atlanta we met artists who brought their artcar to the show and they inspired us to decorate a car and take it to the Houston Art Car Parade. I wanted to embellish the car with sculptural elements, so I taught myself to carve. The whole experience inspired me and I now spent my studio time flitting back and forth from sculpture to painting, trying to let each discipline influence the other..
